Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - The charity set up to help victims of the Boston Marathon bombings has distributed another $18.5 million to the families of those killed and the injured survivors.

With the latest disbursement announced Tuesday, The One Fund has handed out more than $80 million to about 230 people hurt and relatives of the four people killed by the April 15, 2013, explosions at the race's finish line.

In the latest distribution, the families of those killed received an additional $100,000 each for a total of nearly $2.3 million.

The 35 victims who lost limbs or suffered severe limb damage received an additional $150,000 to $1.1 million each.

The nonprofit will also use $1.5 million to establish the One Fund Center at Massachusetts General Hospital to help victims and their families.
